Just bought a pf9 about a month and a half ago. Really love the size and feel and the lack of a safety. I have several other pistols. LC9, LCP,etc when i first started carrying i felt better having a pistol with a safety but soon realized that if I ever got into a life or death situation that safety might get me killed. Some friends have the pf9s and recommended them. Very happy. Got the parkerized version because of the better finish. Shoot quite a few rounds thru it. Only problem i had is the winchester white box ammo wouldnt shoot more than 3 rounds without jamming. I bought some remington and shot it as fast as I could and didnt have 1 jam. Very happy with my purchase.
